Catching up

Posted by Russel Higgins -

With almost 90% of the corn planted in Illinois we are playing catch up at the NIARC. Replicated studies planted with a four row planter and different treatments is a slower process when compared to planting with a 12 row (or larger)planter across large fields! Activities at the NIARC yesterday included the Variety testing team who planted their soybean variety trial; the entomology researchers pulled in at 8:30 pm and got an early start this morning to plant their soybean studies as well. Lyle Paul shared his expertise in designing and spraying a pre-emergence herbicide trial. Expect lots more action today, I'm off to the fields!
